Do Not Rush towards Divorce

Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) stormed out of his house after having an argument with his wife. He was so angry that he intended to divorce her when he returned.

Yet, while he was out, he heard someone reciting these verses from the Quran:

“And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them – perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good.” Quran 4:19

Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) forgave his wife and they made up. Later she became pregnant and gave birth to a son, Salim (RA). This son would become his father’s favourite child who grew up to become one of the best narrators of hadith. Abdullah ibn Umar never forgot those verses he heard.

Marriage is full of ups and downs. There will be times when your spouse drives you mad. But don’t rush towards divorce.
